The simple, yet highly sensitive, device is designed to sample volatile chemicals in the air, your home, food and even your body.

About IAD-X?

Our company was founded by two FIU alums and it is doing applied research on a patent pending technology owned by FIU and developed by one of us: Dr. Jose Almirall.

This technology improves the sampling and detection of volatile chemical compounds in air.

Called the CMV (capillary micro extraction of volatiles), the device can sample air simply by drawing air through it.

When sent to FIU for analysis using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry, researchers can then identify potential volatiles including those associated with the presence of bacteria, mold, explosives, termites and much more.

The CMV could even be used in medical diagnostics simply by breathing through it — offering an inexpensive, non-invasive method for disease-detection.
